Use your passion fashion

Got a passion for fashion? Find out what it’s all about below, and join the team of students working to make a difference at City and in the local community!

What is it and why is it important?

23% of Londoners’ clothes are unworn, and it is estimated that £140 million worth of clothing goes into landfill each year which puts pressure on both the environment and the people making our clothes.


What could you do?

  • Organise a clothes swap
  • Start a sustainable fashion network
  • Create an event or campaign to highlight ethical shopping
  • Set up a repair café to teach people how to give new life to their clothes 


What’s involved?

Regular team meetings at a time that suits you – we suggest an average of 1 hour per week – plus completing the plans that you put in place.


What will you get out of it?

  • Make a difference
  • Meet like-minded students
  • Gain skills in project management, creative communications, negotiation and persuasion, campaign planning, team work.
